5 sessions: Saturdays, October 3 through November 14 (no class October 17 or 31), 2pm - 5pm

Instructor: Helena Clare Pittman

Students will work from still-life setups and landscape photographs to explore the exciting potential of six different mediums. We’ll unlock Degas’ and Cassatt’s secrets of layering pastels, work in dramatic values with graphite, learn how to approach oils from the ground up, and explore mixing acrylic medium with oil pastel for beautiful glaze and encaustic effects. We will also focus on original ways to use photographic references. For adults and children age 8 and up - children under 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

Fee: suggested donation $10
